The right way to go was to make hell difficulty drops better, to let people run Alkaizer-like route on hell difficulty to farm gear, fix all the treasure chest spawns and goblins on inferno.
You farmed enough gear on hell --> your switched to farming act1 inferno --> farmed enough gear -->switched to act2 inferno --> etc..
What did we get instead? Major nerfs of the inferno and major gear drops increase so you was able to jump to act3 inferno right away. And what did you do in act3 inferno? Right, you farmed again, just like you did before nerfs.
